Recently, when Coldplay released their single ‘Hymn For The Weekend’, we were in for a pleasant surprise. The stunning cinematography depicted the sights and sounds of Mumbai, full of colour and character. Our favorite surprise (apart from Sonam Kapoor) were Beyoncé’s vocals and costume. We couldn’t take our eyes of her ethnic yet kitschy get up and if you couldn’t too, we’re showing you how to get it…
Look #1 - Beyoncé goes ethnic
Start by applying the Lakmé Perfect Radiance Day Crème which serves as a moisturising base for your look. Follow this up with the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Foundation, whose gel texture will blend easily and give your skin flawless coverage. For the all-matte look we’re going for, use the Lakmé Absolute Face Stylist Compact to set your makeup.
A warm, sculpted face is key to Beyoncé’s look so get out your Lakmé Absolute Sun-Kissed Bronzer to match up! Dust the darker shade around the edges of your face and the hollows of your cheeks while blending thoroughly. Then dust the lighter shade over the high points of your face to highlight it.
Apply the Lakmé Shine Line from the Illuminate Range in the Shimmer Bronze shade all over your lids and smudge it out evenly. Tightline your top and bottom waterlines with the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate and blend any excess product into your lash line with the smudge tip. Fill in the bare areas of your brow with the Lakmé Black Eyebrow Pencil and volumize your lashes with the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Volume Mascara.
Use the Lakmé Absolute Lip Pout in Plum Rush to outline and fill in your lips with the edgy, deep wine shade. Paint your nails with the Lakmé 9 to 5 Longwear Nail Enamel in Peach Promotion for a coral pop.
For Beyoncé’s hairstyle of beach soaked waves, the Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray will do the trick. Scrunch your hair tightly and release after a while to reveal natural,salty waves.
Look #2 - Beyoncé as Rani
Start by applying the Lakmé Peach Milk Moisturiser as a deeply nourishing base for your makeup. Then blend in the Lakmé Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse into your skin which will give you great coverage while looking natural. For a flush of colour, apply the Lakmé 9 to 5 Pure Rouge Blusher in Peach Affair on the apples of your cheeks while dragging it upwards till your ears.
For your eyes, apply the darker shade of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick (Limited Edition) over your lid and lash line. Using a finer applicator brush, take the same shade and wing it out towards your brows. Run the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate over your waterlines and follow this on lashlines and smudge it with the sponge tip. Give your brows a natural touch by filling it in with the Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal in Brown. Then finish off by applying the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara to give your lashes a natural look.
For a wearable take on Bey’s bold lips, apply the Lakmé Absolute Gloss Stylist in Rust Crush to give your pout a glossy gold toned shine.
